The Dragons of Nova (Loom Saga #2) by Elise Kova Publication Date: July 11, 2017 Publisher: Keymaster Press
Cvareh returns home to his sky world of Nova with the genius crafter Arianna as his temperamental guest. The mercurial inventor possesses all the Xin family needs to turn the tides of a centuries-old power struggle, but the secrets she harbors must be earned with trust — hard to come by for Ari, especially when it comes to Dragons. On Nova, Ari finds herself closer to exacting vengeance against the traitor who killed everything — and everyone – she once loved. But before Ari can complete her campaign of revenge, the Crimson Court exposes her shadowed past and reveals something even more dangerous sparking between her and Cvareh. While Nova is embroiled in blood sport and political games, the rebels on Loom prepare for an all-out assault on their Dragon oppressors. Florence unexpectedly finds herself at the forefront of change, as her unique blend of skills — and quick-shooting accuracy — makes her a force to be reckoned with. For the future of her world, she vows vengeance against the Dragons. Before the rebellion can rise, though, the Guilds must fall.
 
My Review
I really enjoyed this book a lot too, even though it took a little bit longer to get into, compared to the first book. But even though I still liked this book a little bit more than the first one. I think that's because of the last half of the book, so much happens. There are some deaths especially one very surprising one, at the end. Cvareh is still my absolute favorite of all the characters, I really love how he feels towards Ari, and I feel that after this book, I would love for them two to get together in the end. Flor really surprised me towards the very end of the book, and I am not sure about how I feel about what she did. She is sure changing compared to what she was like, in the beginning of the first book. Something's that happened in this book is sure going to make the last book in the series very interesting. And I can't wait until December to find out what that is going to be. I am so happy I was chosen to take part in the book tour for this awesome and action packed book.

Reading progress update: I've read 16%.
The Dragons of Nova (Loom Saga) - Elise Kova

I really wanted to be further along in this book by now, but my weekend and this week have been crazy. So I haven't been able to read much of the book. On the weekends my husband whom is a truck driver is home, so are family has family time on the weekends. And I have been babysitting my great nieces and nephews on Monday through Thursday, and this week my niece Andrea has been working later than usual. 

Now back to the book, I am still loving Cvareh and Flor the most so far, even though I do like Ari. I am really not sure how I feel about Cvareh's sister, at all, or any of the other characters that have their own point of views in this book. So far I am enjoying this second book, but I am not as crazy for this book as much as I was for the first book. Hopefully that changes, since I am not that far into the story.

Review: Imaginary Girls (Nova Ren Suma)
Imaginary Girls - Nova Ren Suma

Series: N/A

Publisher: Dutton Juvenile (2011)

Genre(s): Urban Fantasy, Mystery

 

This book is beautiful. And it's ugly, sometimes, even. And it's definitely weird.

 
I was in a reading slump. I didn't feel like reading anything at all and that is a very scary feeling for a book lover as all book lovers know. I started reading Imaginary Girls in this mindset, and at first I wasn't interested. Not much really.
 
But then the pace of the book picked up and I wanted to know more and more and I just had to read. And I also had to stop because I wanted this book to last, if that makes sense.
 
Ruby and Chloe are sisters. They might as well be orphans because they have different fathers and their mother loves her bottles more than she loves them. But it's all right, because Ruby takes care of Chloe. Ruby can get anything she wants, from anyone.
 
And so Ruby raises Chloe and tells her stories about the town that was there before their town but was destroyed by water when New York City decided to make a reservoir. And that the townsfolk didn't leave and now live in the underwater city.
 
One day an accident happens. Chloe is swimming and she finds a dead girl. She is sent to live with her father but after two years, Ruby wants her back. And Ruby always gets what she wants.
 
Imaginary Girls was... well, I can't even say. I really liked it because it is just so... strange (but good strange). There's a main character who isn't the main character, there is love that is more obsession than love but in the end it is love and the emotions portrayed in this novel turn everything around and make us doubt our assumptions about the characters.
 
I can't even describe this book properly. It has that ethereal quality of otherness that so many paranormal books try to achieve but can't. It is truly compelling and beautiful, not because of the writing being poetic or anything. It's just the story, the overall subtleness of the plot and of the characters that make it so. And Chloe's unique and flawed perspective is what makes this book so magical.
 
Imaginary Girls is the story of two sisters that had a hard time growing up. It's about love so strong it ends up destroying instead of nurturing. The characters were spellbinding and interesting. The story was haunting and the paranormal elements were subtle and so well placed you never really know if there is something supernatural.
 
The plot is well constructed and keeps you guessing. But what really makes this book shine are the characters. They seem so real and at the same time so... other, so different. I must say I didn't much care for Chloe's "love interest", though.
 
Overall, a great read. It is a mysterious book that will keep you reading just to find out what is real and what is not. Recommended.

 

Blast from the past: originally read and reviewed in 2012

Texas Bossa Nova
Texas Bossa Nova - Cynthia D'Alba Magda Hobbs is back with her grit and wit. When she first came on the canvas in Texas Two Step, I knew she had a story to tell and Ms. D'Alba did not disappoint. Magda fools the world with her caustic charm, bad girl image and street girl smarts. On the outside she's built a tough shell so that past hurts can not be revisited upon her heart. To be wanted and loved is her most secret of dreams but the risk for her is far too great to sacrifice the pain of disappointment that has followed her all her life. Reno is her chance at forever. If she's willing to take the chance. As I dive further into the series I'm impressed with Ms. D'Alba's ability to deliver intense stories with the same fluent flow of a less emotional story and come out on top with every one.
